Minor electrical gremlin...

My dome lights will not come on when the doors are opened on my 97 D90 SW. I have removed the pressure switches from the doors and cleaned them but the dome lights only flicker. The problem seems like a bad ground or corroded positive contact but the pressure switch contacts in the doors are clean. My first instinct is to replace all the pressure switches in the doors but I'm not sure what else to troubleshoot. Anyone have similar problems?

Mine haven't worked (automatically) since I bought it. I doubt all the switches are bad. Pull each one out and jump the wires. If the light works then it's the switch. If it doesn't pull down the light and check those contacts.
